Phyl- You are correct about erroneous census listings, including dead people on the population schedules. My point was that it is also possible that the population schedule was correct that he was living there in June; when the question of who died in the last year was asked, they may have given information for Francis who might have died days earlier.

There is also a lengthy dissertation at the bottom of the mortality schedule about a Cholera outbreak the prior summer, and how nearly all deaths (76, I think) in July, August, and September of 1849 were due to Cholera.

In short, there can be arguments made both ways, and lacking other evidence, we'll never know which is correct.
